National Library Week, April 8-14, 2012

It runs for one week each year and promotes libraries. There were concerns in the 1950s that Americans were reading less because research showed that less was spent on books and more on radios, televisions and musical instruments. In response, the American Library Association began sponsoring National Library Week in 1958.

The idea behind National Library Week was to motivate people to read and they, in turn, would support and use libraries
